Glossary

 

The name “Lotus” finds its origin in the lotus flower, which holds profound symbolism across various cultures, including ancient Iran, India, and ancient Egypt. The lotus flower is a sacred symbol, often associated with enlightenment, serenity, and inner awareness. In Persian culture, the lotus flower has a rich history and can be seen prominently featured in art, notably in the iconic Persepolis monument near Shiraz, Iran. The lotus flower, depicted in our logo, is a significant symbol of purity and spiritual growth. It is deeply rooted in various mythologies and religious traditions, representing the light of life, tranquility, and inner awakening. At Lotus Educational Institute, our name and logo encapsulate the essence of the lotus flower’s profound cultural significance and its connection to enlightenment and artistic expression.
